I see a lot of people posting about “Haters”….”Don’t worry about Haters- they are just unhappy people”; I think would sum it up. I guess this relates to my previous post. I don’t have “Haters”, because I haven’t acknowledged that negative behavior towards me in over four years now. I just don’t care… And I think Facebook has provided me with a great social experiment. I used to make fun of people on FB. Who had the time? Nonsense… Ha..look at me now. In the beginning I friended EVERYONE I knew, met, worked with, admired. As time went on my love of FB increased. I found I Loved writing and using it as my on line journal. I put most everything on there that I would have written in my journal. Why not? This is who I am. I offended LOTS…I scared my mother and close friends:”Vanessa! Why are you posting that?”….Why not? This is me…. And you know what? It weeded out the negativity, the haters…if people didn’t like me they could just defriend me…. And I am totally fine with that. No hard feelings. When I see who likes or comments on my posts I smile. I feel a connection with them. They get me. I put a smile on their face, made them laugh, or made them think, or even made them mad, but we can discuss or agree to disagree. Challenge me….I love to ponder my views. So, my post yesterday: I am my worst enemy. I am my own hater. Other haters don’t even come to mind. I do crave certain people’s approval and that is something I need to work on, but they aren’t haters…. More just on the fence:) We can choose to see haters and negativity or we can choose not to. Don’t even worry about “Haters going to hate”…..they aren’t even there.
Haters- I don’t have them
